"Nuseaue," like many names in Family Search's NYC indexes, is likely a transcriber's bad reading of bad handwriting. I would want to get a copy of the original death record to interpret it for myself.

Also, as you may know, Abraham had a sister named Nettie Biegeleisen, one of whose daughters was Ester Marion Thurm (c.1890-1978). Perhaps she was named for Nettie and Abraham's mother. Unfortunately, her gravestone, pictured on, shows no Hebrew name.

A great-great uncle from Galicia, named A. Bienenstock, has the following in the information from New York, New York City Municipal Deaths, 1795-1949. What would Nuseaue be, since the mother's married name would have been Bienenstock, and maiden name was Hoffert? I didn't find Nuseaue in Beider's book on given names. Thanks.

Mother's Name: Esther Nuseaue Hoffert
